I started this podcast back on Valentines Day of 2013. I called the very first podcast episode, “Stupid Valentines Day.” I did not name it that because I think Valentine’s Day is stupid. I named it that because I think the marketing machine behind the “Valentine Day industrial complex” is doing an absolutely cunning job at hiding the facts. They present a picture void of reality. The average American doesn’t know the shocking facts behind the procurement of their beautiful roses, delicious chocolates or shiny diamonds. This episode I recap important points from Episode 1, and provide a safe and morally sound alternative to purchasing your Valentine’s Day “goodies.”
Topics Mentioned In This Episode:
- What is “Fair Trade“?
- Child labor
- Can roses causes cancer?
- Where to buy organic, fair-trade roses and chocolates
- Cut Flowers: Major Source of Toxic Pesticides
- Where roses come from?
- Dark Side of Valentines Day
- Organic Bouquet
*Personal recommendation: I highly recommend purchasing your spouse flowers or gifts from Organic Bouquet. They are a Fair Trade company that sells only organic products. I have purchased flowers from them before and highly recommend them!
